This was a policy priority on our 2021 Legislative Agenda.

Across Minnesota, parents of children with disabilities and medical complexities are struggling to access consistent, high-quality, accessible child care. By creating grants for childcare providers to establish or expand inclusive settings, we can support them in meeting children’s individual needs, alleviate constraints on the homecare workforce shortage, and allow parents to work during the day.

Investing in grants for inclusive child care will help ensure that children with disabilities receive support alongside their siblings and peers – resulting in long-term, positive benefits for all children, and building true belonging in community from an early age.
